So this is seemingly canon beyond A Link to the Past's English localization now.

Always loved that last name for some reason. Rhymes well and sounds bad ass.

Kings of Hyrule have all had Hyrule as a last name, and presumably Zelda would as well

Didn't the Gerudo not like Ganondorf in OoT? I know Nabooru didn't, and the rest of the Gerudo respected her quite a bit.

Urbosa implies he wasn't actually Gerudo, or at least that the Gerudo people have disowned him and hope he wasn't actually Gerudo.

Should've made Ganondorf his surname and have his first name turn out to be a massive reveal in a future game.

His first name is Steve.

Doesn't she say he "posed" as Gerudo, or something along those lines?

I mean, the kings all have "Hyrule" as a last name, so presumably Zeldas name is Zelda Hyrule.

To track the family lineage is my guess. Link has a father in BOTW who was a knight he is never shown or what happened to him.

No I think she says he was a Gerudo so the tribe is disgraced because of this and is the primary reason they are helping to defeat him.

I think it along the lines of he "took the form of a Gerudo". Meaning that incarnation of Ganondorf was Gerudo.

"Took the form of", IIRC. I think it was more to do with his origins becoming obscured over time as well as the Gerudo understandably wanting to distance themselves from him.

At least their middle names usually aren't disappointing.

Only Nabooru didn't like him, the rest where loyal to him as they thought that Nabooru was loyal to him.

In Breath of the Wild, they seemed to have disowned him as they felt that he has dragged the Gerudo name through the mud and in response outlawed Gerudo males and they only mate with non-Gerudo males.

I think she said "took the form of a Gerudo" or something like that. Whatever it was, my understanding of the line was that she's referencing how Ganon/Demise is a force that is continually reborn/recurring and one of his manifestations was as a Gerudo.

That said, I agree with others that Urbosa is clearly not happy that he once did this. I think it's a part of Gerudo history that she, and presumably the rest of the tribe, acknowledge but would like to erase/dishonor by fighting against him and his forces.
